New for the year moths since my last post have been: The Flame, Straw Dot, Garden Grass Veneer, Lesser Wax Moth and the Codling Moth. Today we again struggled to find anything at Dunge. As well as a lack of birds there also seemed to be a dearth of insects. About 6 Hobbies were seen around the reserve plus a couple of Peregrines and the usual Marsh Harriers and a couple of Little Egrets. A Cuckoo was still calling around the ARC Pit. I was driven to photographing moth caterpillars, which I have identified as follows:

The Lackey

 Fox Moth
 Garden Tiger
